Our Assessment: This Walther Uzi is a semi-automatic rifle that fires .22 LR rounds. The Uzi was the brainchild of Israeli IDF officer Uziel “Uzi” Gal who invented the gun in 1948. Gal did not want his brainchild to be named after him but the Israeli government did so anyway. Following his military career, Gal would remain a firearm designer for the remainder of his life, eventually settling in the US. The Uzi entered service in the IDF beginning in the 1950s and in the 1960s it began to be exported around the world. It was the most widely proliferated submachine gun by the 1980s. This Uzi was manufactured by Walther under license from Israel Weapon Industries (IWI) to meet civilian market regulations, and it can now be yours. This is a gun you do not want to miss out on!
